Supine Passive Knee Extension PROM With Overpressure – Ankle Weight
HOW: While laying on your back, straighten your leg out and place your heel on an elevated surface. Typically lying back on your coach with your foot on the arm rest will suffice. Place the weighted object over your knee and let your leg relax. Hold that stretch for as long as prescribed.
FEEL: You should feel a stretch in the back of your knee.
COMPENSATION: Keep your knee relaxed and straight. Make sure the weight is centered over your knee. Don’t let your knee hit the ground while the weight is being applied. Keep your toe pointed up so your hip doesn’t rotate up.
